People's Commentary on the Gospel According to Luke


American Sunday-School Union 1889

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In writing this commentary on Luke, Rice had a couple of goals in mind: to place each reader of the Gospel narrative as if he/she were in Galilee or Judea, and familiar with the scenery, people, habits of life, speech and thought current in Palestine when Jesus was upon the earth; and to aid the reader in grasping the meaning of the text. This volume includes beautiful illustrations and artwork, maps, and engravings.

In the Logos editions, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
